Another month, another derrière-sculpting sweat sanctuary from Pop Physique. Following September's Downtown debut and October's Abbot Kinney arrival, the witty Silver Lake-bred fitness chain has rolled out its 15th SoCal studio in Old Town Pasadena.
Tucked inside the historic Indiana Colony building, the space features exposed bricked walls, a state-of-the-art sound system, and (for the first time ever!) showers. The complex also houses foodie faves like Intelligentsia Coffee, Pressed Juicery, the Pie Hole, and Coolhaus, meaning you've got plenty of of post-sesh grub options. Up next is Pop's first-ever East Coast outpost, so spread the word to all of your fitness-obsessed NYC pals.
